The mask of Malinaltepec could be defined as a ceremonial face of Teotihuacan style, made of green stone, originally designed as a transmitting agent of powers, 1800 years ago. It was recovered and modified later by the former residents of Mezcala, who added the incrustations of serpentine, amazonite, turquoise, shell and obsidian. The masks had a cosmic meaning.
